Anyone in the world
This powerful word connects Harry Potter, Joe Biden, and 2021!
就是 'crucible嚴峻的考驗' 一詞!
The word is 'crucible'!
In his inauguration
拜登稱此刻是 'crucible for the ages 時代的考驗 '
Biden called this time a 'crucible for the ages'
“crucible 坩堝” 是用來鎔解物品的杯狀器皿
A crucible is a cup used for melting things
It can also mean a severe test
如哈利波特 "Goblet of Fire火盃的考驗"
such as the "Goblet of Fire" in Harry Potter
"The Crucible" 同時也是知名的戲劇(中譯：激情年代)
"The Crucible" is also a famous play
about girls accusing to be witches
The world has been tested by violence
and by pandemic
but like the metal in the crucible
like any test we face
we are remade stronger
